Vertigo is the illusion of movement of the body or of the environment. With vertigo, one senses rotational movement and unidirectional, or one way, movement.
How this motion is perceived comes with a minor distinction, according to Dr Kenneth Ross DC. Objective vertigo is described as the sensation of the environment spinning around the patient whereas in subjective vertigo, it is the patient who feels he is turning around his surroundings.
A significant distinction sets vertigo apart from dizziness. In dizziness, patients in FL feel a loss of balance, light-headedness or nausea but there is no motion perception.
Your Altamonte Springs Chiropractor will perform a thorough history and examination including orthopaedic and neurological testing to determine the true cause of your vertigo and dizziness. Then they will design a unique plan of management for your special case.
